    Default Makita 281 lxt body?

    Alright Lads,

    Has anyone got a knackered drill they want to donate?
    I dropped mine from 30ft and it’s snapped, it still works but needs a new body, anyone want to give/sell me there old knackered one?
    I’m scrimping for a mortgage so could do without forking out for a new one tbh!
    I do t check these forums regular so my email is tetchy100@gmail.com taa

    The plastic and rubber body can be bought from makita for about £20-30 I think. Give their customer service department a call and they’ll probably point you in the right direction. If all of the internals are still working then it’s just a straight ‘bolt off’ and ‘bolt back together’ job.
    Also, I’ve learnt the hard way but, a tool lanyard on my wrench is an absolute godsend!!

    Good to hear from you Roger. Where are you plying your trade these days? Wherever it is no doubt you are giving others the benefit of your wealth of experience and knowledge.
    Shame that Thailand shambles that phil181 had a hand in never came off I was looking forward to working with you and learning from you.
    I am working in Malaysia now so if you ever get over this way let me know.
